Brazilian Girls are returning in full force with their new single “Pirates” – a new wave piece that is built on warped samples and auto-tune waviness. Exuding a subtle air of 80s pop, “Pirates” is a vibrant piece that takes you spinning and swishing to the bedroom to practice the art of sleeping with yourself and other people. Enjoy below:

In regards to the track, Savina Sciubba shared that it’s “a song about sleeping and sleeping together. How we should all sleep more and sleep more together. It would change everything. Actually that’s what the whole record is about. It may even be the true meaning of life.”

Comprised of Didi Gutman (keyboards/vocals), Aaron Johnston (drums/percussion/vocals), Jesse Murphy (bass/vocals) and Sciubba (lead vocals/electronics), Brazilian Girls formed back in 2003 and have built a solid fanbase, including Zach Galifianakis who casted Sciubba as regular for his show Baskets. “Pirates” is from the quartet’s fourth upcoming album Let’s Make Love, which is also the first record since their 2008’s Grammy-nominated New York City. Produced by their longtime collaborator Frederik Ruben, the album took several years to finish since most of the band members live scattered around the US. But now they’re back in full force and will start hitting the road this spring:
